Webinar Materials | Are Permanent Magnet Motors the Next “Game-Changer” in Energy Access?

Presentation materials from an April 22 webinar on the benefits of permanent magnet motor applications in off-grid and weak-grid markets.

As the ‘prime movers’ in many appliances, motors determine the capabilities, efficiency and reliability of most off- and weak-grid products. New Efficiency for Access research suggests energy-efficient permanent magnet motors could be a “game-changer” for off-grid and weak-grid appliance markets. Appliances powered by permanent magnet motors use up to 42% less energy than products powered by conventional alternating current motors and can reduce the net cost of a household’s solar energy system by 30%.On April 22, 2021, Efficiency for Access hosted a 90-minute webinar on permanent magnet motor applications in off-grid and weak-grid markets. This presentation reviews permanent magnet motor technology, current market trends, and barriers and strategies to incentivise adoption. A case study is provided by Pakistani fan distributor, Harness Energy.
